We were only able to visit the Zoo, the aquarium and the botanical gardens due to time constraints. It is really worth the pass with general admission to these attractions. It is better to visit in summer, since some animals, games and restaurants at the Zoo were closed for the season. Everything excellent!

This was a great way to explore Columbus. We needed to split it over a couple days to see them all, but it was well worth it!

We had a great time! This pass more than paid for itself. It's a great way to see some of the main attractions in Columbus.

The pass is well worth it. Went to the Zoo and Conservatory. Next time I will do the art museum and vet museum as well.

Great time at the escape room. Friendly and alert staff. Fun teammates
